Midler said of the auction in a statement on its website, â€œItâ€™s just brimming with fabulous lots donated by dear friends who share my deep concern about the environment! Proceeds benefit New York Restoration Project (NYRP), a nonprofit I founded to clean & green New York City. Weâ€™ve turned 55 vacant lots into beautiful community gardens and planted more than 250,000 trees, and weâ€™re just getting started, so I hope youâ€™ll place your bid today!â€
Other prizes include a pair of house seats to In the Heights; a pair of premium seats to Next Fall; a â€œRentâ€ movie poster signed by the entire cast; golf with Alice Cooper in Scottsdale, AZ; invitations to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center; and many others.
